Welcome to the first official posting of 'Grounded Design'. The point of this blog is to reflect on the form, meaning, and expression of designed landscapes. Pretty much anything outside the building is fair game for my musings. Gardens, parks, plazas, rooftops, streets, neighborhoods, and towns all will be joyously celebrated or panned; revered or despised; studied or ignored. All to answer one basic question: what is good design?
Good design is not just about beauty; it is about creating spaces of meaning. Spaces that speak to us before we understand what they are saying. Spaces that ground us and remind us of a deeper reality. Here the search begins.
Please do bear with me as I get the hang of blogging. So welcome! I look forward to hearing from you.
Grounded is a down to earth Oxford based graphic design group.Grounded designs are validated empirically through successive implementation, that is, methods must prove effective in practice according to the theoretical framework ascribed to. The design processes and methods continuously inform, test, validate, or contradict the theoretical framework and assumptions upon which they were based, and vice-versa.ReplyDelete
